Had coffee here. Central location. Coffee good, good cakes too. Lunch menu very varied, it looked very good. Service efficient. Only concerns is it's a narrow layout and may not be suitable for disabled people

It wasn't the first time I had been to the Old Bank House in Kinsale but as usual it was perfect. The staff is nice and efficient; the food is beautiful and I would recommend this place over any other did you ever want to grab a bite there!!

Stayed here as part of a couple for one night in July 2016. Our room was fabulous with opulent decor and period features. The bathroom was a 'galley' style. View overlooking the town. We found parking on the street. Breakfast is served in the cafe downstairs. Nice buffet and good selection of cooked breakfasts. Very pleasant staff. Would recommend this... More

Old Bank House has everything you need for a great Ireland experience in the hospitable town of Kinsale. Great coffee and eatery at the entrance of the hotel. The pubs, food, shops and great night life are literally down the block from the steps of the hotel.

Quaint hotel with accommodating staff. We were moved to a better room after she saw the number of suitcases we had for no charge. We really felt welcome when we arrived and the breakfast the next morning was great

Most people seem to be very happy with The Old Bank House. We seem to have a different view. It is fine for what it is, but it is not really a four star. Some of the bathrooms are large and decorated in marble which is what we would expect at a a nice B&B. Other rooms have tiny bathrooms.... More

Very good restaurant comfortable rooms very good breakfast. Not very good Wi-Fi. Would have given this hotel five stars except for the Wi-Fi, Nice bakery downstairs if you miss breakfast you could have a nice lunch downstairs very good homemade pastries and sandwiches.
